Wide FM to your scanner is FM Broadcast/Non-Digital TV Audio, 75 KHz deviation.
Partially correct [not 6.25 yet]. Narrow in the VHF / UHF community is a 12.5 kHz channel (compared to the existing 25 kHz channels).
The 6.25 kHz efficiency implementation date was postponed indefinitely.
Thanks Skip. Thanks Don. It looks like I should just set the modulation to FM for these freqs. They aren't wide as in broadcast FM and they aren't narrow either. I searched the owners manual, an online "easy manual", and a couple of reviews for the BW on the WFM, FM, and NFM settings and couldn't find that answer. In hindsight it wouldn't be WFM so FM makes the most sense.
